Honiton Hawks Under-9s visited Newton Abbot on Sunday morning and returned with another victory after a fine all-round show.

Hawks travelled to South Devon with a squad of 10 players - Archie Trott, Arran Hansford, Byron Chalmers, Elliot Arscott, Harry Haysom, Kyle Moore, Liam Webber, Logan Symons, Taylor Prettejohn and Will Parris.

The two teams contested an 8-a-side game with rolling substitutions.

Both teams contributed to an entertaining morning of rugby, playing with great commitment and determination.

Such was the quality of the defending, some of the tries were hard earned, going through several phases of play.

The Hawks boys did enough to come out on top by 12 tries to 8.

The Hawks’ Best Effort award went to Byron Chalmers, who was new to the Hawks’ team this season and has improved his individual game on a week by week basis.

At Newton Abbot, young Byron turned in another good performance that included him scoring a brace of tries.
